DISCLOSURE: This is a sponsored post with The Bloggers Block. All opinions are my own.
Did you see it? My name. On the flyer. Pretty cool, huh? Working as a television anchor and reporter for 12 years, I became accustomed to seeing my name in the spotlight. But since leaving the business, those days are few and far between. Until now.
Knowing my background and at the recommendation of fashionista blogger friend, Jessica, who writes at The Beauty Delicacy, Dayana Brown - the CEO and founder of The Bloggers Block - contacted me. It was a welcome surprise.
The Bloggers Block is an organization that holds quarterly events to introduce bloggers to brands and brands to bloggers with an emphasis on fashion, beauty and lifestyle. I attended their first event last November at O Lounge in Fort Lauderdale.
As one of my first fashionista blogger events, I networked with fellow writers and connected with several brands including The Trendy Truck, a women's boutique on wheels. I have since partnered with this mobile boutique on an event at a shopping center the company I work for owns. Based on this experience alone, I knew I wanted to be a part of The Bloggers Block. I believed in what they were doing and working to accomplish.
The Bloggers Block's mission, according to Dayana, is to promote the latest in fashion, beauty and lifestyle. Their quarterly events create awareness of local people and businesses. They target an audience of professional men and women in the media, PR and marketing industry by showcasing local and international brands with a live blogging and social media bar.
Think of The Bloggers Block as a regularly scheduled media and content party introducing popular bloggers to other bloggers and your brand. What better way to place your product to be considered for editorial coverage in popular and industry niche blogs and media outlets. Below you'll find a list of just some of the brands for Thursday's (February 13) event.
Fellow bloggers - Jessica of The Beauty Delicacy, Christen of Fashion Loves Music, Lucy of 2Gen Beauty - and I will introduce those brands and emcee the event at Segafredo Brickell, 1421 S. Miami Avenue in Miami, from 7-11 p.m. Back behind the microphone and my name in the spotlight once again, it's going to be a great night. We hope you can join us!
